PING Blueprint Irons
Forged 8620 Carbon Steel
A four-step, multi-stage process for the one-piece forging provides very tight dimensional tolerance control, resulting in a true shotmaker’s iron crafted with precision, for precision. The choice of 8620 carbon steel combined with a head design that concentrates mass through the impact zone delivers a pleasing sound and feel.
Based on requests from several PING professionals for a blade-style iron sized and shaped to deliver the ultimate in workability and trajectory control, Blueprint combines a clean, compact head with less offset, a shorter blade length and a thin topline.
A machined tungsten toe screw adds forgiveness, and combines with an internal heel weight to provide precise swing-weight tuning. The narrower sole enables clean turf interaction for consistent strikes from different lies and turf conditions to maximize versatility for playing all types of shots. A hydropearl chrome 2.0 finish helps ensure solid impact by repelling moisture.
Machined Face & Grooves
Every detail is exact and carefully calculated. More than 50 steps in the manufacturing process, including precision-machining of the face and grooves, are 100% inspected.
“The feel is amazing,” reports PING pro Louis Oosthuizen, a consultant on Blueprint’s design. He was the first player to put the new irons in his bag and the first to win with them. “I love the feedback I get and how smoothly they go through the turf from any lie. The Blueprint’s workability gives me the control to hit all the shots with the precision I need to win tournaments.”
“I put them in play immediately once they arrived,” said PING pro Tony Finau. “They’re workable, incredibly versatile and feel great. There isn’t a single shot I can’t hit with them, which gives me a lot of confidence in pressure situations. The look at address is also perfect; the size and shape really fit my eye.”
Shaft and Grip
The standard shaft is the Dynamic Gold 120, offering low trajectory, low spin, and tour-caliber accuracy in a lighter-weight steel. The stock grip is the Golf Pride MCC Align Black/White, which combines rubber and cord for all-weather performance and patented Align® Technology for consistent hand placement. Multiple aftermarket shafts and grips are also available.

- These are design specifications that may vary due to manufacturing tolerances.
- Lie angle is based on Black Color Code at standard length.
- Power Spec Loft is a fitting option for players looking to boost their iron distance or decrease spin to hit a desired trajectory window. The Power Spec is a custom-designed loft configuration that delivers a power boost in a calculated fashion without sacrificing the integrity of the club’s design.
- Club bounce angles will vary slightly if ordered with non-standard loft specs.
- Standard swingweights for graphite-shafted clubs are 1 to 2 points lighter than shown, depending on shaft flex.
- Achievable swingweights depend on shaft, length and grip combinations.
- Available in left- and right-handed models.

PING offers a variety of shaft flexes in steel and graphite to meet your needs and preferences. Selecting the proper shaft flex for your swing will help you get the most distance and accuracy from every shot. Generally, players with faster swing speeds require stiffer shafts to keep the ball trajectory lower, while players with slower swing speeds will require more-flexible shafts to produce a higher ball trajectory.
The choice of steel or graphite shafts is usually based on preferences for weight and/or feel. Players seeking a lighter overall weight and/or a softer feel in their irons may prefer graphite shafts, while players who prefer a standard-weight club with a firmer feel may prefer steel shafts.
We recommend that you get fit for the shaft that allows you to play your best golf. Whether that’s a softer, lighter shaft with a higher launch or a heavier, stiffer shaft with a lower trajectory, a PING Certified Club Fitter can help you find the shaft that brings consistency to your game.

PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.
PING colour-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip colour code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
